You know how the saying "cats and dogs are living together" is used to imply things are all messed up? Okay, well here is something way more terrifying than that.
If you can't tell what's going on there, it's a RACCOON RIDING ON THE BACK OF AN ALLIGATOR AND WE ARE ALL SCREWED. SERIOUSLY, IF ALLIGATORS AND RODENTS ARE TEAMING UP THEN I'M OUT OF HERE.
Apparently the picture was taken by a man who was looking at alligators with his family, when his son startled a raccoon they couldn't see. The raccoon ran out onto the alligator's back, and then the alligator did not kill it instantly. This is terrifying, no good, very bad news.
If you guys know anyone at NASA who is looking for someone to go on the first manned flight to Mars who doesn't care about the risks involved, please pass along my phone number to them.
